Millions of Child Car Seats Recalled

Almost 3.8 million Graco car seats are being recalled because children can
get trapped by buckles that may not unlatch.

The recall covers 11 models made from 2009 through 2013 by Graco Children's Products of Atlanta. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, it's the fourth-largest child seat recall in U.S. history.

Graco says tests found that food or beverages can make the harness buckles sticky and harder to use. If you have one of these seats, contact Graco toll free at 800-345-4109 or at or consumerservices@gracobaby.com.
